    Gauge pod for CD player?

    I wanna put my CD player in the place where the stock gauge pod is...you know in place of the clock. Can I just buy the stock gauge pod and fit the CD player there, or will I have to custom build a housing?

    The gauge pod is single DIN size. The 6 CD changer fits in a 2 DIN spot I believe. Not sure about the single CD, though.

    it will absolutely work. i did it in my '04 WRX. i liked the location, easy to read, all that. problems include difficulty reading the display in bright sunlight, and everyone (and his mother) seeing exactly what kind of radio you have, since it's above window sill level and on display for the world to see while you're driving. install isn't hard - you have to buy the gauge pack mount kit which can be found from $50-80 and will allow the mount.
